Hello Pingskills,

I love your website and am improving because of your videos. I have one question. When I am warming up, how should I stretch (before training)?

Thank you!

Hi Matthew,

It is best to do dynamic stretches before training.  Dynamic means moving stretches, rather than static stretches where you stretch and hold a position for a few seconds.

An example of a dynamic stretch is to rotate your arms around in big circles.

for static stretching-is it just less effective or bad in some way?

and-how to dynamically stratch legs?
Thanks

Static stretches are not bad, just for warming up before play dynamic stretches are more effective.

It is good to do static stretches at the end of the training session.

To dynamically stretch the legs you can stand and do some kicks or swimming of your legs.
